Neon Boots

Neon Boots is a young and dynamic Spanish shoe company that makes Chelsea-style ankle boots for city folk of all sexes (children included), using an eclectic mix of materials and neon colors to spice up its English prototype. The company was born in 2012 in Valverde del Camino, a locality in the Andalusian province of Huelva.

The Chelsea Boot Fashion

The Chelsea boot is making ever greater strides in women's shoes. Most Spanish brands I follow included it into their Fall-Winter collections this year. The Chelsea boot owes its appearance on the contemporary fashion scene to the bohemian set of artists, musicians, and other creatives who tended to hang around West London's Chelsea district in the 50s and 60s. And you know artists and musicians - they can't help becoming fashion icons! So from that time on the Chelsea boot became a fashion item.

Summer? Time To Think of Boots

Summer mood, the weather is great - who wants to even think of winter and cold weather? I don't, BUT.... right now is a good time to take advantage of great discounts being offered on last season's boots. As many fashion lovers know, there is nothing wrong with a) wearing last season b) getting bargains on designer boots. Here on this blog, I am, of course, talking Spanish brands.

AGARE: Ana, Olga, Teresa

I came across AGARE website in early spring. After reading an interview with Ignacio López Modrego, the founder of the company, I found out that AGARE is a family business named after Mr López Modrego's three daughters - Ana, Olga, and Teresa. The sisters are now running the business, which is based in Illueca, a small town near Zaragoza in northeastern Spain. AGARE's target market is urban men and women aged 35-50, who are looking for casual, sporty, and comfortable shoes at a reasonable price.

Shoe of the Week: Neosens

I love this fantasy floral version of the Gamay ankle boot by Neosens from La Rioja. It is made from textured suede, featuring a signature curved 9 cm (0.4'') baroque heel and a round button Neosens logo. It is available from the Neosens online shop.

“Spanish Shoes Are Very Well Made”

I must confess that even though I buy these wonderful, often expensive shoes, I am somewhat lacking in the "taking care of them so that they stay pristine" department. Thankfully, here in Toronto, we have a shoe repair place called "Novelty Shoe Rebuilders Ltd". Their current shoe maker in-chief, Robert Perry, is a master of his craft and a super charismatic guy.

Shoe of the Week:  Pura López

Pura López boots of such a moderate height and long shaft (38 cm or 15'') are not often seen. This one, only available in US size 8, has a very elegant, mildly pointy, toe box and a full inner-side zipper. The only embellishments, beside the folds on the top, are matching suede straps finished with elongated pine-cone shaped ends.
